It was great to see all the smiling faces this morning as we journey on to the 2nd half of the school year.

Over the next few weeks, all students will be taking the NWEA mid-year progress monitoring assessments. These assessments guide classroom instruction by giving feedback about student growth in math, reading and science (3-6).


I know it looks and feels like Spring today but please be sure that your child brings the appropriate winter clothing to go outside to recess each day. Students are encouraged to wear the winter gear to recess that parents send to school. As a reminder, we do not go outside if the temperature is below 10 degrees including the wind chill factor. Thank you for making sure all of your children’s winter items are clearly marked with their first and last name.


As we enter 2020, we look forward to more hours of daylight, ½ days on January 16 and 17, and the UCS Academic Blitz.  The Academic Blitz is an informational night to start looking into all the great academic opportunities available to our students. Do you know what UCMST, UAIS, or CSI stand for? Did you know that UCS has partnerships with businesses and universities in our community? The Blitz is designed for students in 5th-10th grade to start mapping out their future. Although college looks so far away, it is really around the corner. I hope to see you there on January 9, at Henry Ford High School at 6:00PM. (Program starts at 7:00)




Stay warm!

March Is Reading Month

Academic Blitz”Reading is Awesome” is the 2017 March is Reading month theme at Switzer. We started our reading month with our reading assembly today. Information has been sent home but is also included in this newsletter. Students will be bringing home their packet with reading goals and a log sheets to be turned in on Mondays, starting March 13. Students who meet their goals and turn in their log sheets will be awarded tickets/legos and be entered into drawings for access passes to the Lego Garage or Slurpees. If we hit our school goal we will have a special visit from our “lego rescue heros” from the police, fire and homeland security. Don’t forget family reading night planned for March 24, at 6:30pm. All prizes and events have been funded by our supportive PTO and thank you Switzer reading committee for your hard work and great ideas!
